Facial Plastic Surgery Q&A

What types of facial plastic surgery are available?

A facelift is perhaps the most well-known type of facial plastic surgery. This procedure allows Dr. Gracia to alter the arrangement of fat, muscle, and other facial tissue to create a more youthful and well-rested appearance. Best of all, sagging skin is pulled taut during the procedure to give you a natural-looking, lifted appearance. 

A rhinoplasty, often called a nose job, is another common facial plastic surgery procedure. Dr. Gracia has extensive expertise in rhinoplasty and can sculpt your existing tissue to create a nose that’s perfectly aligned with the rest of your face. Rhinoplasty can often be performed through the interior portion of your nostrils so there’s no visible scarring. 

Face implants are also available and work to create more sharply defined cheekbones or a stronger chin profile. If you have drooping or sagging eyelid skin, an eyelid surgery called blepharoplasty can help improve the shape of your eyelids. There are even procedures that can improve the shape of your chin or ears.  

What is the recovery process like after facial plastic surgery?

You’ll receive detailed postoperative instructions before your procedure. Following those guidelines is a critical part of a successful recovery. 

If you need medications, try to have those prescriptions filled prior to your surgery. Asking a friend or family member to stay with you and give a helping hand for a few days is also a good idea. 

Your body will quickly launch a natural healing response, and before you know it, you’ll be able to enjoy the results of your facial procedure. 

What if I want lasting results, but I’m not ready for surgery?

Dr. Gracia not only provides outstanding facial plastic surgery services, but he also offers a wide range of other treatments at his practice. 

Many patients love the results they get from a “Madonna Lift,” which uses a fractional CO2 laser to resurface skin and prompt new collagen production. The Madonna fractional eye-lift dramatically improves the appearance of eye wrinkles, dark circles, and drooping upper and lower eyelid skin. 

Injectables like Botox® and dermal fillers can also deliver temporary results. Botox can lessen the appearance of wrinkles and folds between your brows, across your forehead, or around the corners of your eyes. 

Dermal fillers can enhance volume, fill in folds and wrinkles, or plump your lips. 

How do I know which procedure is right for me?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Gracia will discuss your treatment goals. He can share details about the pros and cons of various procedures, and let you know what to expect in terms of recovery time and how long results will last. 

The decision to move forward with facial plastic surgery is a personal one. Dr. Gracia works hard to ensure you have everything you need to make an informed decision about your care. You can also discuss with him how to make facial plastic surgery fit into your budget.
